  • Jonathan Brinley: A Survey of WordPress PHP Api’s Part 2

    WordCamp Jacksonville 2019Speaker: Jonathan Brinley

    August 31, 2020 — Settings, widgets, HTTP requests, shortcodes… WordPress gives plugin developers more than a dozen PHP APIs. Using these APIs enables developers to write extensions the “right” way, using methods, actions, and filters that make plugins forward-compatible, maintainable, and extensible. We’ll take a tour of these APIs, exploring when and how to use them to build a WordPress plugin.

  • Zeev Suraski: PHP – A glimpse into the future

    WordCamp Europe 2020Speaker: Zeev Suraski

    June 14, 2020 — WordPress is the most successful application that was ever written in PHP. As such, the two have a symbiotic relationship, where the proliferation of one benefits the other and vice versa.
    In recent years, the introduction of PHP 7 helped make WordPress better and more competitive, allowing users to deploy high-performance sites with radically better response times and while using fewer resources than ever before – simply by upgrading the underlying platform. In this session, Zeev will tell the story of how PHP 7 came to be (and WordPress’s role in it), the impact it has on the PHP ecosystem, as well as provide a glimpse into some of the key upcoming features to look for in PHP 8.

  • Saied Abbasi: Theme Development PHP vs. JavaScript

    WordCamp Santa Clarita 2020Speaker: Saied Abbasi

    May 30, 2020 — In 2015, Matt Mullenweg suggested that the WordPress community invest some of their time to “learn JavaScript deeply”. Well I am late to the party, and maybe some of you are as well, but Gutenberg is here and JavaScript is amongst us.

    This talk is intended to be a humble narrative about my journey to learning JavaScript, and some React. One that is still ongoing, and that has stopped and started a few times.

    I was originally a WordPress user, turned webmaster, turned developer. This transition has shaped my perspective on development and hopefully allows me to provide some unique and WordPress-oriented insights into how one might move from a PHP-based, WordPress paradigm to make room for JavaScript and React in our workflows.

    We will explore the current evolution of theme development. How JavaScript fits into a WordPress developer’s workflow and where a WordPress developer may end up leaning on an amalgamation of what they know and they may still need to learn. And from that, I hope to open up a conversation about knowing WordPress as a platform and PHP developer, while perhaps not being the best JavaScript developer in the room.

  • Matt Jaworski: The Future Is Now – The Importance Of Upgrading to PHP 7

    WordCamp Kota Kinabalu 2019Speaker: Matt Jaworski

    January 14, 2020 — WordCamp Kota Kinabalu 2019 Part 7 – The Future Is Now The Importance Of Upgrading to PHP 7 By Matt Jaworski. In this talk I explain the lifetime of PHP versions and how the recent major events (the end of life of PHP 5.x.x and 7.0.x) are impacting the industry.

    It’s a very relevant and important topic nowadays, as PHP is going through major shifts this year (PHP 5.6 and 7.0 lost the official support). Unsupported PHP versions will pose a security risk for all websites still stuck on old systems.

  • Carlo Daniele: Dal Database alla Pagina – Le Query e i Post di WordPress

    WordCamp Milano 2019Speaker: Carlo Daniele

    December 21, 2019 — In questo speech, Carlo cercherà di far venir voglia di provare a sviluppare con WordPress a chi conosce un po’ di PHP . Non sarà un discorso sullo sviluppo dei temi o dei plugin, ma su come accedere via PHP ai dati presenti nel database: spiegherà infatti come si modificano le query di WordPress per personalizzare in modo granulare i risultati mostrati a video.

    Questo è l’indice degli argomenti che tratterà.

    Il database e i dati:
    cosa sono i post;
    i tipi di post;
    le tabelle di archiviazione dei post.
    Le query di WordPress:
    la classe WP_Query;
    i parametri della classe WP_Query;
    la trasmissione dei parametri;
    le query variable (pubbliche e private).
    La visualizzazione dei dati:
    la classe WP_Post;
    il Loop;
    le liste (la funzione get_posts()).
    Come personalizzare le query:
    modifica del Loop (pre_get_posts o tramite nuove istanze di WP_Query).

  • David Hoy: Who needs PHP?

    WordCamp Belfast 2018Speaker: David Hoy

    April 19, 2019 — For years I held myself back thinking that because I couldn’t comprehend PHP there was a limit to how far I could go as a developer.

    With WordPress and plugins like Toolset this is absolutely untrue. There is no data management problem I cannot solve with these two powerful platforms working together.

    In this workshop , I want to demonstrate how quickly a front end form can be created and then how the data captured can be manipulated to create awesome solutions for our clients.

    Any of the new form builders can be used, but Toolset is my go to as the support is unreal. To date I’ve built recruitment platforms, tourist portals, an entire HR Suite and much more using Toolset.

    For WordPress users this knowledge could be very useful, for WordPress Developers this knowledge opens the door to lots of repeat business from their existing client base.
